Schizoposting #1 Randonauts, Meme Magic, and Gnostic Fire

If you can understand this post, then go back and read it again until you don't. Otherwise you will not be able to escape the pull of your attractors. We're trying to find and ESCAPE reality-tunnels here guys! Get with the program, I'm tired of debating the Constitution with people who think so little of themselves as to refuse their own liberties for the sake of less terrorist attacks or for the sake of protecting the children. My world is built like the Timaean cosmology of the great Platon: towering astrophysical rungs enciphered in one another like Ezekiel's wheels,-- a progress of the karmic aeon in endless circles toward the ONE reality, ONE future, ONE soul: the soul of the Philosopher-King, extracted out of the long purgation of spirit in the apocalypse of matter and the tortures of flesh, as stated by the Gnostic ZOSIMOS in my signature,- purged from the genius of mortal reality, under the guidance of the Demiurge- the form of the soul itself and the only thing that matters: the perfection of human nature, the idol of Beauty, Truth, and Freedom. Those values alone matter. I would burn a trillion universes filled with lower life in order to produce but one universe in which those three things ruled above all else: that is the will of philosophy. You people can squabble over petty privileges and legalisms as much as you want. But this was the will of our Founders as will: there is no American dream, there never was. The only dream is that Freedom, Beauty, Genius and Strength rule above all else. That's the cosmos I want. Anyway I am introducing a new technique to philosophy, and to the internet: the schizopost. Like I said, we're trying to escape our reality-tunnels guys, the TIMAEAN OVERSOUL AIN'T GONNA BUILT ITSELF.

" ... The Negative is in this way a guarantor of
existence, not by combining the lovers into a binary fusion or univocal synthesis, but
through the in-existent third being; for it is always third,- for it must remain inaccessible
to System like the Schellingian Un-Intuitable and unabsorbed by System, as the
asyntheme. Because it must remain in this sense unfulfilled, that is, unabsorbed, it is a
threat to the System whose existence it enables, that is,- to all things (like the Bataillean
share) that cannot or refuse to glimpse the Negative and allow it to release itself from
them,- from the System it would otherwise tear apart from within by its own excesses.
Thus when I implore philosophy to reify its own Negativity, I mean, to reify this
mysterious third or asyntheme, while by the term reify, I indicate the chiastic
rearrangement of the monon-mone, that is, this pattern of Unity--Multiplicity--Unity, as
had been engraved in the mystic sigil of the god Apollo in the Delphic Tetractys.

The Negative is Gnostic fire: Gnosis or true philosophic-understanding neither as the
subsumption of the ontic or ontological; neither as the enlightenment or the madness
inspired by the riddle of the Tree of Knowledge at the Garden of Life around which the
old rabbis gathered in hope of wisdom, having already denied themselves by taking
wisdom as something that could be hoped for, that is, predicated by something else,
something that would need to be "wiser than wisdom"; neither as Paradise or the wage of
death, as imposed by the angel Raziel at the foothold of the Garden,- but gnosis as the
Fall into Sin itself, and understanding as that incomprehensible datum by which the two
might be differentiated within the episteme (ie. one as a predicate to the other, instead of
reducing both to a univocity) by the still more mysterious element, namely the agapeic
transformation of redemption and the excessus of human nature, ie. the Christus;
understanding neither as belonging unto the perfect God or the Demiurge,- YHWH or
Lucifer; neither as one term within the binary structure of the predicates (predicate-
universal) or another, but rather, what Vico called the imaginative-universal in which
in which all Predicates take shape as an eddy in the historical circulus of the Universal, and through
which the Universal is in turn drawn into the vortices of the particular; both the prophetic
Dasein of Gerard Granel's indeterminate nomination or the metonomasia,- the power of
the Name to cleave open a future space, as with God's call unto man ... " -- Monon and Mone, Preface; Sect. I.

Beyond being understood or not-understood: the ultimate goal of philosophy is to pursue untested, novel domains and lines of thought; to 'break the symmetry' over which the fate of System can be determined, and to achieve this by exploring the ambient signal and cross-current of various disparate frequencies,- blending concepts from one domain with those of an unrelated one; inserting one idea within the logic of a foreign body as a kind of retrovirus, and that in order to steal a concept from one place for the purpose of appropriating it to some unforeseen end, (often against its originator, from which there are prompted apparent immunological responses) or in any case, in a way it was not intended to be utilized; travelling through a kind of horizontal gene transfer between the fields of semiotics, Platonic cosmology, Gnostic sorcery and chess theory, and through a multitude of various techniques, to collect the necessary materials with which to force Thought to reconnect with its pre-Symbolic real, that is,- the stochastic element and phantom residuum (mone) or memory of its (g)/host,- (ghost, host) of the void-call of the Negative;-- the agutezza [See: Namegiving’s Commentaries.] and semasiokinetic * clinamen prior to the hyperinflation of mimesis and the consequent attempt by man to, in an echo of the Babel Tower, bridge the gap following the reparation of new linguistic territory in the face of the Greek KHAOS [the mythic origin of the chiastic nebula out of which the logos first springs to life, guided by an inner form toward the goal of crossing the gap or “missing center”, the “khaos”] or emancipatory CHIASMUS. [The Lacanian sinthome is at its simplest, a symptom of a disease that does not exist, and therefor an extended mimesis equivalent to Baudrillard’s map without a territory or the “copy of a non-existent original”, as formulated in his writing on the Simulacra, or mirrored economically in Blanquian despair- a socialism without any faith in the revolutionary potential of the proletariat, stripped of all irony and all possibility of further self-reflection,- an empty sky into which man projects his equally empty Utopia as the whimpered fulfillment of Knowledge, and all this in a “universe of swerves and collisions”, trapped in the permanence of process and the attempt to “find a center that is everywhere and nowhere” through some “ultimate declination” with which the last computation might be made and the half-life of the proton discovered. As the value of a food item in general, during a time of scarcity, was fought over by developing hominids, and language was used to negotiate (in psychoanalytic terms, to deflate) this mimetic aura, (mimesis, in semiotics, psychology and generative anthropology, refers most simply to the reproduction of something through symbolic systems) so this ascription of value began to replicate itself through the very faculty that evolved to temper and contain it- language. At that point, we began to reify the mimetic inflation in concepts like honor, or the presence of a given deity.]

* The academic ambivalence over the principle of compositionality has led to the formulation of two basic theoretical grammars: the categorical grammars based on phrase-structure, (the morphism of deep-structure and surface-structure in the various transformational algebras and Chomskyan generativism) and the more Tesnierean dependency grammars, the former analyzing meaning in terms of abstracted semantic rules-sets and the later, in terms of 'dataflow' or directional graphs capable of expressing the dependencies of lexical units in terms of their relationship to the finite verb as the structural center of the clause. Kinesis, seeking to overcome the limitations of both approaches, is premised on a reformulation of the structural center as a transient assembly that can become any word of the sentence, and actually changes position (hence kinesthetic-analysis , 'movement'-analysis or semasio-kinesis) through the sequences of different sentences given in natural language, incorporating thus a notion of acyclicity from hypergraph theory. This 'kinetic-translational center' is meant to capture the notion of compositional redundancy and noncompositional stochasticity. A language that had no redundancy at all would be a language in which any conceivable random combination (hence the tychogenetic, 'random' or stochastic element of analysis, vs. the nomogenetic) of lexical units (words) would produce a meaningful expression, (grammatically conformable) and thus a language for which all meaningful expression was irreducible (non-compositional) to any generalized algebra or extracted rule set, whereas a language that possessed perfect compositionality would be maximally redundant, with all meaningful expressions in this later case thus perfectly reducible, as they are in formal logical languages, to a generative rules-set. (The number two, conceived as a "lexical unit" or word in mathematical logic, can itself be expressed as a syntactical operator (eg. the product or addition as the "syntax" abstracted from the addition of one to itself.) on other lexical units or numbers.


This residuum is what Lucretius called the CLINAMEN, a spontaneous declination against the laminar flow that accounts for the broken symmetry of the Epicurean-atomic Universe; an unpredictable swerve or cross-current,- a chiasmus running against the vortex of Anaximander’s universe that, in this way, acts as the first transformative element,- a point of nucleation which, through division and separation, sets into motion the eons-long scale of periodicities in which the great accumulation of matter begins, leading up to a final victory of Gravity over all the forces of Nature,- a transformative metaphysical "catalyst" without which no chemical reactions can begin. In prose, the CLINAMEN must be invoked, if we are to overcome the cancerous replicant at the core of critical theory, as thousands of subjects are swept up in the spontaneous current, a dipole between Thought and Nonthought, leading up toward a miraculous and apparently spontaneous re-coherence of materials that nobody has realized fit together,- an organization equivalent to a “map” or topos. This lack of any bilateral connections between the separate regions, as well as the lack of lateral connections between individual entries within the map, and the production of ad hoc neuromorphic hypergraphs (to recall Bloch's assertion that we can no longer afford to work “without curves in the series”, and that theory demands now a “complex Riemannian-time” and the production of a higher spatial-temporal manifold beyond the sequential logic of that preceding us in "unmapped" territory, ie. the sphere of Kulture beyond the modality of techne, or at any rate the economic superstructures readily ascripted by the concept of Progress. The hypergraph, borrowing from algebraic topology, allows the conversion of binary data, from out of its serial formulation, into a cartographic projection capable even of being modelled as curvature.) as a kind of neural network like that given in Maturana and Varela's 'Autopoiesis and Cognition' (where a model of the brain is developed in terms of a cyclic connectivity between transient neural networks within the animal and equally cycle-driven or transient patterns of growth, decay and regrowth within the environment, such that stimuli, having induced responses from the brain, cause the animal to then modify its environment in accordance to both its instinct and neuroplastic or learned response and back-propagate, as a conjoined system a la. the oscillatory spiking activity responsible for the integration of the sensory-body, which is projected into three-dimensional space, from the multiplicity of perceptual inputs via recurrent thalamocortical resonance, new alterations to the chain of stimulants, which should be understood as various active spheres, each with its own amplitude and viable range or signal-strength, and each placed into a relationship with others by means of overlapping frequencies like a kind of ambient-signal or environmental-noise,- a kind of omnipresent neuroplastic static) through the associations emerging solely from the logarithmic addition of its internal parameters, is of course reminiscent of the manner in which the transient cell-assembly of the hippocampus maintains a stable image of the topos via ambient cognitive maps despite a continuous depolarization of the neuronal plasma membranes and thus a high rate of granular decay at level of any isolated synaptic connections.

As to the notion of a cancerous replicant, we should first recall that a lot of Marxists, either openly or in secret, subscribe to the accelerationist doctrine. They seek to deliberately magnify the problems of social stratification and capitalist inequality in order to reveal the suppressed truth of capitalism, which is oppression; hence accelerating its evils in order to make them clear enough for the average person to admit to himself and embrace as a viable impetus toward revolutionary political action, over and against the instinct of false-consciousness,- an instinct which, by internalizing the stratification or class-struggle that has emerged, reproduces it at the level of psychic organization (mirroring the superstructure in the structure, to cite more from their own lexicons) and convinces man that his own oppression under the regime is actually his freedom, or that the inequality under which he suffers so ignobly is merely the result of the 'game',- a meritocratic game of course, on whose account any apparent injustices in the system might be explained away. This is phrased most powerfully in good old Adorno. Borrowing from the negative philosophy of history straight from the Dialectic of Enlightenment, Adorno sought to pursue the logic of capital to its assumed self-cancellation, just as Marx himself had. He tells us that we must "cast the world in the profane light of the apocalypse in order to reveal its "true truth", and in the cracks and fissures thereof, usher in the Messianic consciousness." That is all just his pseudopoetic way of saying: we must deliberately misinterpret and exaggerate Western culture and the related sociological 'problematics', for this is the only way to make clear what we already know is the truth of the West: the oppression of the species-essence as Marx would say, that is: man's alienation from his own human essence. For such revolutionaries, every man contains within himself the entire plenitude of the species-essence: simultaneously male and female, simultaneously scientist, poet, philosopher, architect, etc. etc. It is only the process of industrialization, which forces us to assume a specific trade and specialize in it, playing our role as a cog in the machine and factory line, that distorts this essence by (to shift over to Steiglerian analysis) absorbing ethos (culture) in the image of techne (technology) and thus induces alienation from our own nature,- a nature which, for the Marxist, is so nebulous a thing that it might include all things within itself,- replicating like a conceptual tumor with no internal structure, just a seething redundant protoplasm leveling the ground up Promethean stone of human history like the dust gathered under the wings of Benjamin's angel in the 'light of the apocalypse'.
---------------

What I am doing through this process of re-concatenation,- a reconstruction of the "ambient" signal by recombining apparently disparate signals, is just this: finding the blind-spots in the "pre-symbolic Real", over which Anaximander's vortexes prevent any atoms from straying too far from the point of attraction: the NEGATIVE, a Gnostic fire through which the Ontos can be reorganized and escape these vortexes cast between ontic and ontology, and through which consciousness can be rediscovered in its metaphysical opening to the transcendent, contra consciousness as the phenomenological closure of Dasein. For randonauts, they uses numbers to explore blind-spots, which they call reality tunnels, but in principle, you can see the similarity:

[The same is true for our geographical routes, no matter what path we choose, wherever we decide to go, there is a limited number of logical chains that will guide our mind when choosing a route, even if it seems to us that we act by chance, there is always a place where none of these logical chains leads.

Even more convincing example is the so-called "Chaos Game", illustrating the phenomenon, which in Chaos Theory is called attractors:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sierpinsk ... Chaos_game

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DcvY_45XFU4

In short: If we choose three random points and move the fourth point many times half the distance to one of these points, randomly chosen by a dice throw, then despite the fact that all movements were guided by randomness, all the locations of the point during the game form a figure known like a Sierpinski triangle. In other words, the presence of any game rule forms a limited outcomes space. It is interesting that in the center of this triangle there is a space into which points never fall. Such a space in our case would be called a Blind-Spot.

Now imagine how many rules shape your routes and behaviour: logic, habits, social norms, life experience, cognitive biases, external factors that affect you according to the characteristics of your personality or are in a causal relationship with your behavior and so on.

All this together creates a causal viscosity, which we call the Stasis Field, the force that holds you in the Reality-Tunnel of your own.]

We'll need a context of course. :wink:

But if you insist: the context is my defiant assertion of a reborn Platonism, (against Pedro, and basically everyone else) and the antisophic metaphilosophy involved in escaping the attractor-points limiting our semasiokinetic potentiality, our "reality tunnels". I hope that unclarified things enough.

Every joke has a grain of truth. And every truth- has a grain of a joke. People need to go back and read Kierkegaard man, apparently the philosophy of irony was lost. The guy couldn't figure out a way to overcome Hegel and defend his extremely devotional Christianity. So what did he do? He submitted the Hegelian dialectic... to the Hegelian dialectic, and so overcame Hegel through Hegel in order to re-ground his faith in God. That is what his whole work was: the most profound joke ever told by man.
